Friday Facts: let’s talk ceilings.
A California tract home with an open-beam ceiling, 1960, and a 2017 Kenyan home with a similar open beam ceiling.
Ceilings are often used to hide floor and roof construction. They have been favourite places for decoration from the earliest times: either by painting the flat surface, by emphasizing the structural members of roof or floor, or by treating it as a field for an overall pattern of relief.
They are classified according to their appearance or construction, This may be done for aesthetic purposes, such as achieving a desirable ceiling height; or practical and functional purposes such as acoustic damping or providing a space for HVAC or piping.
Whichever the case, when designing any space it’s one of the areas that can’t be left to chance. -

(SWIPE LEFT) In my latest video BRINGING YOUR MOODBOARDS TO REALITY I practically show you how to not only create a moodboard but also how to convert it into a stylish space. .
I virtually styled two homes, for two imaginary clients, and showed you how one would go about doing so with a moodboard. .
So get comfortable, head on over to my IGTV CHANNEL or YOUTUBE CHANNEL (by clicking on the link in my bio), and I will take you through the journey of bringing your moodboards to reality. .

In my last video 'THE ART OF THE MOODBOARD' I showed you how to create a moodboard, a visual representation of the elements that would go into decorating any ideal space.
.
Now as I'm not one to just give you theory and leave you stranded, I saw it best to practically show you how to not only create a moodboard but also how to convert it into a stylish space. So in my latest video, BRINGING YOUR MOODBOARDS TO REALITY, I virtually styled two homes, for two imaginary clients, and showed you how one would go about doing so with a moodboard. .

So guess who's now making videos? Yup...I am!
.
Worry not I won't stop blogging but seeing that a lot of you have been requesting for me to get into the wonderful visual world of YOUTUBE, who am I to deny you videos where I flare my arms around (yes, I unapologetically suffer from a very serious case of dramatic hand flaring when I speak) as I shower you with interior design and decor knowledge.
.
Speaking of decor knowledge, I would like to present you with my first of many videos; THE ART OF MOODBOARDS.  Let the record show that design of every perfect space begins with a moodboard and with that said, in this video I will show you the 5 important elements that all interior decorators incorporate into one. .
So get comfortable, head on over to my IGTV CHANNEL (or click on the link in my bio to check it out on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL), and I will reveal the secrets that will help you turn your house into a home. .

8/16 – The eighth designer for #IFS 2019 is Ami Doshi Shah who will be representing Kenya! Ami is a trained Jeweller and Silversmith, having gained a BA (Hon) in Jewellery and Silversmithing from the Birmingham School of Art & Design in the UK. Link to full bio below!
Image by @amidoshishah and @themaganga

Ami’s love for Kenya and its human and natural beauty is a constant source of inspiration for her creative endeavours. She sources local materials for her work and uses her technical training to work with the elements in unexpected ways, bringing her artistic sensibilities to her label, I am I.

s t o r i e s 🇰🇪 .

Evening insta! I’m house sitting for my parents this weekend, which means I’ll be sharing some snaps of their beautiful home with you all ✨
.
.
My parents built their @hufhaus back in 2008, and they’ve been slowly making their mark on this beautiful building ever since. They’ve taken it in a different direction than most modern homes, in that the decor is very much a reflection of their lives rather than sticking to the modern luxe theme that many Huf Haus home owners choose to highlight. .
.
.
My Mum was born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya. Something that I think is beautifully hinted at in this casual, cosy seating area. From the metal work hang heads on the window beams to the pattern on the cushions, you can feel her personality and childhood welcoming you into their home. Interiors, for me, should be a reflection of who you are. Not what’s in style, or what your favourite Instagram celeb is promoting that week, but rather something personal to you that reflects your personality to ever guest you welcome inside. .
.
I’ve always been in awe of my parents ability to make anyone welcome, and I think that the personal touches they’ve infused into their home make guests feel like they know my parents before they actually do. .
.
.
So, here’s a reminder for me to keep my own home personal. Show homes are lovely, but do we really want to live in them? I don’t think I do. .

As far as I remember, this is the 2nd, possibly 3rd timber drift trike floating around the interwebs. I hope to see many more made from unorthodox materials in the future!
Even with a crushed finger, I'm so friggin happy it's completed. Time to hit the hills!! 😁😀😎🤣🤓😱🤠😇🤧👻👌🏿👍🏿🙌🏿💨💓 #drifttrike

“Strong Alone Cactus” - In an area by Mount Kenya inhabited by few other living organisms, Rui was on a walking safari when she came across a few big, bold cactii. There was something about the loneliness of the environment around them that made them seem strong, tough, and independent to her, so she folded that up into a simple composition. The warm coral paired with faded blues and greens gives the prickly plant a bit of softness.

MY MAY DESIGN EXPLORATIONS (PART 4)-SWIPE LEFT:
.
Here’s a look at one of my favourite chairs, the amazing 70’S PEACOCK CHAIR and all the breathtaking ways it can be styled into a space. I’ve loved this chair from when I first saw it on some @jlo music video (can’t remember which one but if you know what I’m talking about leave a comment below reminding me).
.
I’ve known @odds_kenya have had it for a while now but I just don’t have space for it (currently!) and I’ve never had a project it’s suited for. But on 20th May during their sale I decided to go check out what I could get a good deal on and I was extremely tempted to get this amazing chair that was going for 25,000/- (before the discounted price) but decided against it (a decision that’s currently haunting me)
.
Ps: the sale was only on glassware but the lovely VERONICA from @odds_kenya has informed me that they should be having their annual sale this month. I’ll keep you posted when I know more.
.
So what do you think of this attention grabbing chair? Do you love it as much as I do or do you think it’s too much? Let me know by leaving a comment. .

MY MAY DESIGN EXPLORATIONS (PART 4):
.
On 20th May 2018 I
went to check out the sale at @odds_kenya . There have been a couple of sales this month and I’ve avoided most of them because they never quite felt like a deal, but when it comes to odds and end’s sales we all know that you get a good percentage off for brilliant quality pieces. Did you take advantage of the sale like I did? If so what did you buy and how much did you manage to get off for it?
.
I bought a couple of mason jars but what I truly wanted but didn’t get because I don’t really have space for it currently (key word....currently!!) is the amazing, breathtaking, beautiful, stylish, attention grabbing 70’S PEACOCK CHAIR.
.
Check out my next post to see my dream chair, the 70’s peacock chair!!!
.
Ps: the sale was only on glassware but the lovely VERONICA from @odds_kenya has informed me that they should be having their annual sale this month. I’ll keep you posted when I know more.

Here’s a look at various ways umbrellas have been used in interiors. Which one’s your favourite and would you dare to use umbrellas as decor in your home?

MY MAY DESIGN EXPLORATIONS (PART 2):
.
On 3rd May 2018 I attended the 2nd day of the HOMES AND GARDENS EXPO at @saritcentre and I completely fell in love with all the stands that had very realistic and beautiful artificial flowers on sale. .
Here are my 7 reasons why I prefer artificial flowers:
1. Cost-effective
2. No expiration date
3. Eco-friendly- silk flowers are actually a bit more environmentally friendly than their real counterparts
4. They survive through any Climate
5. Easy to transport when moving homes
6. Low-maintenance
7. Hypoallergenic - perfect for people like me who suffer with allergies .
What say you? Are you yay or nay when it comes to artificial flowers?

MY MAY DESIGN EXPLORATIONS (PART 2):
.
On 3rd May 2018 I attended the 2nd day of the HOMES AND GARDENS EXPO at @saritcentre . I had planned to go back the next day to grab a couple of items for myself, and some clients, but unfortunately that’s when the fire incident that kept the mall closed for two weeks happened. As unfortunate as the situation was for all tenants who lost a lot we do thank God that no lives were lost.
